The Accessory:  I made a fan for the Queen of Hearts dress.  

Historical Period:  I went for the paddle type fans used in the Elizabethan era
Outfit It Accessorizes:  Queen of Hearts dress
Materials Used:  Velvet, cardboard, ribbon and cording
Techniques Used:  mostly cut out and glued (and a wee bit of sawing)…. some sewing of the velvet to encase the cardboard and attach the cording.

Here you can see the slot I cut out of the end of the dowel.

I cut a slit out of one cardboard heart to fit in the dowel and then glued another heart onto each side to encase the dowel.
